Hey guys! As the author here, I’ve been writing since I was 11 years old! That’s when I finished my first novel! Look here for writing tips, advice, and other such things! As a freelance writer (yes, as my career) I’ve had a lot of people ask me questions as to how I manage, how I get clients, and just writing tips in general. You will find those here, as well as information on my novels and any upcoming goodies!
This is the year that I really stride into making my writing more popular outside of my freelance circle! Maybe you’ll even see a novel from me!
(Find me on facebook: Author Amanda McCormick or Twitter! I’m also on Tumblr.
Also visit my Official Website to catch the latest updates and information about upcoming novels!)

Thanks for following The Write Edge Writing Workshop! I hope you find it becomes a valuable part of your day. Have a great week!
Thanks for following my blog 🙂 ! Great job on finishing another Nano. You did 90,000 words last year? You rock. I look forward to reading your novel — I read about it over at your web site and I can’t wait to read more.
Oh, thank you so much for taking the time to go over to my website! Once I finish this years NaNo novel (A zombie apocalypse with a fantasy/horror twist) I am going to decide if I plan on editing Cerulean Darkness or Limbo. I’d like to get a critique group and feedback and really get serious about querying!
Thank you for having such a lovely blog as well! And thank you for the follow!
Zombie fantasy! IIIII like it! I did a zombie story for my first Nano — Zombies at the Gates 🙂 . It was more of a lark to see if I could actually do it. Nano’s crazy, isn’t it?
The excerpts from Cerulean Darkness sound wicked cool. I didn’t see any for Limbo but maybe I missed them. I’m sure they are too. You’re quite welcome for the follow. I did so that I’ll know when you finally publish them and I can get a copy.
I have to apologize that you aren’t seeing the 400 words a day of flash fiction that I usually do. Now that I’m focused on the novel, I won’t be doing that for a while. I’m hoping that the random insights on the process that I’ve been posting instead are keeping people entertained 🙂 .
Limbo is my current NaNo novel. Once I’m finished with it, I’ll get a page up for it as well. Just because I won NaNo sadly doesn’t mean that I managed to finish my novel, ha!
NaNo IS crazy, though it’s a fun kind of energy charged crazy. I love the community, and the ability to meet new individuals. I think that one of the most important things for writers is to have equally crazy-creative friends who understand.
You’re really flattering me with the compliments to my story – if I publish, I’ll send you a reviewer copy ^_^
Honestly though, don’t worry about your content. You’re doing a novel, so you’re allowed to be a little slack on the other stuff. I think that what you’re posting now is fantastic, and I can’t wait to see what you do next!
I know what you mean about not finishing the Nano novel. This one’s left me with more questions than answers. Not that that’s a bad thing.
Totally agree on having the equally-crazy friends. Who else would understand? It’s hard to get good feedback, too. I have a good writers group that’s very supportive. My brother’s great that way too.
I liked what I read from your story a lot! I look forward to reading it. I’d be happy to buy a copy and support the artist. If you have any interest in dark fantasy I’d love to send you a copy of mine once you have an e-reader. (“No thanks” is also fine 🙂 .)
I’m glad you’re liking the blog. I thought a quirky look at what’s happening on the novel would be fun to read 🙂 .
Oh, I would love to have a copy of your novel! I am a huge lover of dark fantasy. That’s really what this zombie novel is, more than post apocalypse. It’s been really fun to write so far, even though I’m having to rewrite! I’m glad that you enjoyed what you read of Cerulean Darkness. I’m going to be working on the sequel to it as soon as I finish editing it!
It’s harder for me to find writing friends – it’s a balancing act. I need to find a group of people who are going to give good feedback, but aren’t simply going to give criticism without it being constructive. Thankfully, I do at least have a few writing friends who are great to hang out with.
I am enjoying your blog, and being quirky is wonderful. I enjoy blogs where I can see part of their authors personality really peeking through!
On the way 🙂 ! Thank you for being interested!
Rewriting is good. I’m a firm believer that good stories become great when you’re editing.
Agree, it’s hard to find writing friends — none of my friends actually write. Meetup.com is a good way to find a group if you’re near a major city. I used to live in downtown Philly and the group there was excellent. There’s a writers group in Boston but I’m too far away for it to be practical. The local writers group is more of a support group (“Hi, I’m Matt, and I’m a writer”) where we all get together twice a month and share some of what we wrote. The only people I would send my stuff to right now are people I met in college, who I know are good at critiques.
Thank you for following my blog, and well done on finishing Nanowrimo yourself!
Hi Amanda! Great job on finishing this year’s NaNo and thanks for following my humble blog 🙂
Hi, Amanda! Thanks for following my blog! I really like all of your writing prompts you include in your posts; they are great ways to break through bouts of writers block. =]
Thank you so much! I want to post writing prompts daily if I can (though I will break during November for NaNoWriMo). I think it’d be cool to always have a place to go for new ones!

Thank you for following my blog – I think I’ll return the favor. So you’re providing NaNo tips, too? Great minds think alike! I wish you well this year, and who knows? Maybe we’ll be autographing each others’ books someday….
